# [NTG-context] How to override ConTeXt-SBL titles, to make all titles everywhere capitalized?

I've avoided forcing capitalization in too many places in the SBL rendering
because there are often language-specific (or, within English, even
dialect-specific) differences regarding what should be capitalized. I think
I already enforce capitalization of the first word, though:


\starttexdefinition titleemph #1
\emph{\Word{#1}}
\stoptexdefinition

\starttexdefinition titlequote #1
\quotation{\Word{#1}}
\stoptexdefinition


If you want the behavior you've described, you can change \Word to \Words
in the lines above (in publ-imp-sbl.mkvi). I probably will leave the code
as-is, however, as it seems safer to expect the user to provide the desired
capitalization in the BibTeX file.
